CUSSES’ Kickstarter now up and running to produce second album

From CUSSES’ Kickstarter campaign:

“We are a DIY, three-piece rock band rising out of Savannah, Georgia. Since day one we have done everything ourselves. For our debut album we had no help from any record label. The three of us worked hard in the daily grind, knocking down doors, and getting our music out to some of you and into any independent record stores that would have us. It has been hard and our pockets are now dry but with that being said, we still want to move forward and get our music to the world. This is your chance to experience the band and have individualized memories to go with this chapter. Become a part of the band and our record label.”

From Les Racquet: “The risks of recording this record are profoundly obvious to us. We understand that in the music industry, successful bands have staying power through evolution and the process of getting better, both individually and collectively. Being versatile and self effacing allows artists to forge ahead, roll with the tide and represent the passions and values of themselves and their fans.”
